Great!"Soon to be a limited series on CBS All Access A patient escapes from a biological testing facility, unknowingly carrying a deadly weapon: a mutated strain of super-flu that will wipe out 99 percent of the world&;s population within a few weeks. Those who remain are scared, bewildered, and in need of a leader. Two emerge&;Mother Abagail, the benevolent 108-year-old woman who urges them to build a peaceful community in Boulder, Colorado; and Randall Flagg, the nefarious &;Dark Man,&; who delights in chaos and violence. As the dark man and the peaceful woman gather power, the survivors will have to choose between them&;and ultimately decide the fate of all humanity.(This edition includes all of the new and restored material first published in The Stand: The Complete And Uncut Edition.)
